My Father In Law


Last Wednesday was my FIL’s birthday. So we gather around for a small celebration. We bought a small cake and take pictures. You all might think that why not go out dinner or have a big celebration. At 1st we thought so .. but then dear say .. he don’t want FIL to move around so much. Yeah my FIL is bedridden for more than 1 year since early last year. And we just got news from the doctor and are confirm my FIL have Liver Cancer and will only have around 6 months of life span left. This might be the last birthday celebration for him. We didn’t tell FIL about the cancer thing but we just say that there is a tumor in his body and it is not doing good. We ask FIL how he wanna celebrate his birthday. He just say no need to do anything special just each of us cook a dish will do. Wuah once I heard this I got PANIC .. I DON’T KNOW HOW TO COOK !!!!! then I think think .. I cant cook but I can BAKE yes .. so I make Blueberry Cheese Tart and Egg Tart.

So last Sunday we thought of have a small family gathering for a dinner to celebrate Father’s Day. In the afternoon only we got to know that all the uncles and aunties and cousins will be dropping by for dinner also. We bought about 4kg of crabs from the GreenView Restaurant in SS2 .We realise it that it is not enough as we have around 20++ adult for dinners !!!!! yikes !!!!! So dear hubby’s brother goes and buys another 4kg of crabs. But overall the dinner is GOOD .. and FIL like it very much as he like “yit lau

Though I din mention much or talk much about my FIL but I wanna say a big thank you to him for who he is. He is a very good man but his sickness is turning him into a very sick person and relies on medication daily. He have suffer for so many years and early last year we nearly lose him but somehow he is so much better after admitted to the General Hospital and stay there for about a month plus. Thanks to all the doctors and nurses they did a great job. Thank you to my MIL for she has done so much for FIL and family.

A Poem for My Father In Law
When I married I got a new father,
A special father in law;
That made me very happy,
And a little bit in awe.
You're a man who cares,
With an understanding heart.
You're also filled with wisdom;
No wonder my spouse is smart!
Thanks for being so cordial;
Thanks for welcoming me;
It feels really good to be part
Of your special family.

Sad to hear about ur FIL's case. U are one extraordinary DIL. Very seldom a DIL can get along with her in-laws. There's a bond between u and ur in-laws hor? Dat's very good.
